Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. As in previous years, we will distribute surveys at all of our concerts to gain audience support. At the end of the season, we will also survey our student participants to gain their feedback. The Executive Director will be responsible for carrying out these projects. The scholarship students will also be asked to thank you note about their experience.
